    Default best after market wheel hub assembly (2wd)

    after 2 replacements, is there a wheel hub assembly that will last more than a year. Dealer has gone up to $500 for OEM. I really don't think there is a better option than the $500 OEM. Thanks for any help.

    Check amazon. Also Delco parts are covered by a 12 month/ 12,000 mile warranty. Some have lifetime but standard is that.

    Basic mods: Lights all over, bunch of electrical work, and a couple cooling mods.

    timken is the best IMO. I got at autozone 3yr warr. $180. for 4wd 2000 SIL. I have used the chinese cheapo crap hubs like you last a year then hopefully you don't get into an accident.

    If I read right you've replaced 2 OEM wheel hubs in a year and need another one replaced?
    Timken is one of the best replacements, and as noted the Chineese knock-offs are just as likely to land you in an accident or damage more parts on the truck.
    Something I noted though is your high replacement rate on hubs, unless your driving a huge amount of miles per year you shouldnt have to replace them this often, is there something else going on with the suspension that could be causing this high failure rate?
